Song of the day: Queen- Killer Queen
In 1974, Queen was not yet famous. They would have their first hit with this song, which was number 2 in the UK and number 12 in the US. The song broke with the first two albums, which were heavy loaded. The third album, Sheer Heart Attack, which featured this song, had a lighter tone. The lyrics were written before the music, which was normally the other way around: first the music, then the text. The first line quotes a quote from Marie Antoinette (though she never said it), namely: “Let them eat cake,” she says, Just like Marie Antoinette. A great song and one of my favourite Queen songs, enjoy
